Falling back!

I've finally gotten a chance to really play with my Hits collection! I've struggled with making a choice...I love them all so much, I can barely choose which ones to wear!! In celebration of "Falling Back" and the end of Daylight's Savings Time here in the US, I went with a fall color scheme and quickly stamped a few leaves over this lovely gradient.

I really wanted to see how the holo looked when you stacked colors over each other. I must say, I'm mucho mucho happy with this. I'm just going to get right to the pictures! I didn't finish until after dark, so look for newer pictures later tomorrow showing this in full sun! I managed to catch some of the holo by photographing this outside in the dark with flash, and I like the other regular pictures as well - the lighting is much better and more consistent.

I love love love gradients, and I love love these polishes. Well worth the wait to get my hands on these!! Now, to get the next collection on my wish list......the newest Cult Nails collection, Behind Closed doors!

That last shot is really my favorite!! Which do you think best shows off this mani? Flash in the dark, regular lighting or full sunlight?

UPDATE: Well after two days - we finally had a day with no haze and I got a pic of full sun. You can clearly see the wear my poor nails have taken in these last three days, and I apologize for that. Sadly, I still was not able to clearly capture holo effect here, so I'm a bit disappointed, but that could also be because I had to wait so long to take the pictures.


  1. Thanks Chantel! I'm only sorry that the sunshine state failed to deliver any sunshine today! LOL
